    4/5

    5/5

    5/5

    4/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

    5/5

    The Company

  • Although I worked hard, the atmosphere in the office was very relaxed, and friendly.

    5/5

    5/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • An outstanding amount of time (and I'm guessing money too) was invested in me. Not only did this make me feel really valued, but also helped me improve and develop much faster than I would have done otherwise

    5/5

  • 10. What were the perks on your work placement?
  • Financial Bonus

    Company Parties/Events

    5/5

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • It's a place I can see my self enjoying working in the future, and they seem like they'd be happy to have me back for another internship or interview for a full time job in the future.

    5/5

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • A really great social scene, especially as so many interns live in the company housing near the office.

    5/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • Effectively London prices

    4/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • If we wanted to do things in the evening, we'd generally not go out, but go to one of the company houses, as the nightlife in Enfield is fairly bland.

    3/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • A huge variety of clubs, and sporting events that meet up during lunchtimes or after work
